“Isaac has been a longtime coming for Lindsay and I, who were trying for a baby for seven years before we fell pregnant, so Isaac really is our special gift.”

Lindsay, aged 31, was induced on Sunday – David’s 40th birthday – before Isaac arrived on Christmas Day, at 2.32am, weighing 7lb 2oz.

David, of Edlington, said: “We can’t decide yet who he looks most like – he seems to have a bit of everybody in the family in him.
